1SO then you should try to become like God, for you are his children and he loves you.

2Live your lives in lovethe same sort of love which Christ gave us and which he perfectly expressed when he gave himself up for us as an offering and a sacrifice wellpleasing to God.

3But as for sexual immorality in all its forms, and the itch to get your hands on what belongs to other peopledon't even talk about such things; they are no fit subjects for Christians to talk about.

4The keynote of your conversation should not be coarseness or silliness or flippancywhich are quite not out of place, but a sense of all that we owe to God.

5For of this you can be quite certain: that neither the immoral nor the dirtyminded nor the covetous man (whose greed makes him worship gain) has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

6Don't let anyone fool you with empty words. It is these very things which bring down the wrath of God upon the disobedient.

7Have nothing to do with men like that

8once you were "darkness" but now as Christians you are "light". Live then as children of the light.

9The light produces in men all that is good and right and true.

10Let your lives be living proofs of the things which please God.

11Steer clear of the fruitless activities of darkness; let your lives expose their futility.

12(You know the sort of things I meanto detail their secret doings is too shameful to mention.)

13For light is capable of showing up everything for what it really is. It is even possible for light to turn the thing it shines upon into light also.

14Thus it is said: Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, And Christ shall shine upon thee.

15Live life, then, with a due sense of responsibility, not as men who do not know the meaning of life but as [those who do].

16Make the best use of your time, despite all the evils of these days.

17Don't be vague but grasp firmly what you know to be the will of the Lord.

18Don't get your stimulus from wine (for there is always the danger of excessive drinking), but let the Spirit stimulate your souls.

19Sing among yourselves psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, your voices making music in your hearts for the ears of the Lord!

20Thank God the Father at all times for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

21And "fit in with" each other, because of your common reverence for Christ.

22You wives must learn to adapt yourselves to your husbands, as you submit yourselves to the Lord,

23for the husband is the "head" of the wife in the same way that Christ is head of the Church and saviour of the Body.

24The willing subjection of the Church to Christ should be reproduced in the submission of wives to their husbands in everything.

25The husband must give his wife the same sort of love that Christ gave to the Church, when he sacrificed himself for her.

26Christ gave himself to make her holy, having cleansed her through the baptism of his Word

27to make her an altogether glorious Church in his eyes. She is to be free from spots, wrinkles or any other disfigurementa Church holy and perfect.

28So men ought to give their wives the love they naturally have for their own bodies. The love a man gives his wife is the extending of his love for himself to enfold her.

29Nobody ever hated his own body; he feeds it and looks after it. And that is what Christ does for his Body, the Church.

30And we are all members of that Body.

31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the twain shall become one flesh.

32The marriage relationship is a great mystery, but I see it as a symbol of the marriage of Christ and his Church.

33In practice what I have said amounts to this: let every one of you who is a husband love his wife as he loves himself, and let every wife respect her husband.
